My lil’ sister is usually the trifle maker in the family but she wasn’t going to be there so it was up to me!
Now a co-worker of mine makes a killer trifle with angel food cake, vanilla pudding and strawberries but I was in the mood for some chocolate – lots of chocolate.
Here are the main ingredients.
Bake a pan of brownies – either a 9×9 or 9×13 pan. Maybe add a couple handfuls of chocolate chips. Let them cool and cut them into 1×1 pieces. Put a layer of brownies in a trifle bowl (or any old bowl).
Slice up a clamshell of strawberries and set aside.
Add 3 cups of COLD milk – I used 2 percent – to 2 packages of chocolate pudding (3.9 oz. each) and whisk for 2 minutes.
Stir in 1 cup of whipped topping (Cool Whip or store brand, your choice). Add half of the pudding mix on top of the brownie layer.
Here’s where the “double chocolate” comes in to play. Add half a tub of the Cool Whip Chocolate Dips on top of the pudding layer.
Then add half the strawberries. I actually added most of the berries, just because I could.
Isn’t that pretty? Now repeat the process until you get this…
Doesn’t that look AWESOME? It tasted just as good.
Now, I may have made this trifle so I could use my cool new Pampered Chef trifle bowl (not sure that’s the real name, but oh well).
It is very cool. The bowl comes with a lid AND a detached stand to it’s easy to transport.
